The Cleveland Browns have selected Myles Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick. The former Texas A&M defensive end was considered the top pick in the draft for a long-time.
Garrett beat out Mitchell Trubisky, who the Browns were debating between the two. It’s the 10th time an SEC player was drafted with the No. 1 overall pick.
There were reports that head coach Hue Jackson and his coaching staff wanted Garrett. But owner Jimmy Haslett wanted Trubisky.
He did not attend the draft in Philadelphia. Instead, he was watching the draft from the NFLPA draft party in Arlington, Texas.
“I’m looking forward to being No. 1 if that comes true,” Garrett said an hour prior to the draft.
Garrett brings an elite rusher to the Browns defense. He brings rare explosiveness — when he wants to play since he took plays off at Texas A&M — with good movement skills and agility.
